Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptors Alpha, Beta, and Gamma mRNA and Protein Expression in Human Fetal Tissues

Figure 8

Spleen. (a) The expression of PPARα, β, and γ mRNA is shown across the fetal age range. Log plot of mean ± SEM Ct is normalized to β-2-microglobulin (B2M). (b) The fetal expression of PPARα, β, and γ is shown relative to expression in adult spleen. Each symbol represents the mean Ct value of 2 replicates for each fetal (open circles) sample and adult (filled circles) individual replicates are shown (overall mean for each group is shown as a horizontal line). (c) PPARα, β, and γ protein expression is shown across the fetal age range. Western blot density is normalized to glyceraldehyde-3-phophate dehydrogenase (GAPDH). Up arrowhead indicates PPARα, and down arrowhead PPARβ, and diamond PPARγ. If only one sample was available for a particular age, then an error term could not be calculated and no SEM bar is shown. Regression analysis evaluated change with age. Dashed lines in graphs of C are the 95% confidence interval.
